Securities regulation: If approved, the Proposed Amendments would require client identifiers and/or certain designations on: (i)  each order for an equity security that is sent to a marketplace, and (ii) each reportable trade in a debt security. Where a client identifier is required, Dealer Members would need to provide:  a legal entity identifier (LEI) or an account number. In order to enhance surveillance capacity, the Proposed Amendments would also require a unique identifier for each client of a foreign dealer equivalent whose orders are both: entered through direct electronic access or under a routing arrangement, and automatically generated by the client on a predetermined basis. In this case, the Participant would need to provide:  the LEI of the foreign dealer equivalent as the client identifier [or] a unique identifier for each client of the foreign dealer equivalent whose orders meet the criteria.

draft amendment to the Money Market Statistical Reporting (MMSR) Regulation.
 
Securities regulation - Money markets: Money market statistical reporting (MMSR) data have been reported on a daily basis since 1 July 2016, covering information on the secured, unsecured, foreign exchange swap and euro overnight index swap money market segments on the basis of Regulation (EU) No 1333/2014 concerning statistics on the money markets (the MMSR Regulation). The MMSR dataset is based on transaction-by-transaction data reported from a sample of euro area reporting agents selected by the ECB pursuant to the criteria set out in the MMSR Regulation. The amending Regulation further supports the reporting of the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) of all counterparties that have been assigned an LEI. This requirement will benefit from the extended mandatory use of the LEI in reporting in the Union, and should reduce the reporting burden as reporting agents will no longer need to derive and report the sector and location of the counterparty when an LEI is available. MMSR makes use of reference information contained in the Register of Institutions and Affiliates Data (RIAD) by the European Central Bank (ECB).
